The Welbilt, ABM-6000 is a nice machine with modest features. It has 5 main cycles with 29 variations. Main cycles include basic, rapid, wheat, French, and dough. The 6000 can make 1-1/2 and 2-pound recipes and has crust color controls for light, medium, and dark. The 6000 has a large view window. The pan on the 6000 is shaped horizontal. The 6000 also includes a 14 hour timer. The timer allows you to have fresh baked bread when you get up in the morning or when you come home from work. The 6000 does have a keep warm cycle that will keep your bread warm until you can remove it. This part of the cycle however doesn't keep the bread from getting a soggy crust. It is advisable to remove the bread from the pan as soon as possible. Otherwise, the escaping steam from the bread will be trapped in the pan and make a soggy crust. You can however use this to get a softer crust. Just leave the bread in the pan for 10 minutes and then remove. The 6000 doesn't make a lot of noise.
